Why consider evaporative cooling for the cooling of your building?
Many modern buildings require cooling either for the comfort of the occupants or to protect the processes or equipment they contain. There are three typical methods which can be employed to cool these buildings; ventilation, evaporative cooling or a refrigeration based air conditioning system. The choice of system can have a dramatic effect on the total carbon emissions of the building and the energy consumed due to their different electrical demands. See our Air Conditioning comparison to compare the features of Air Conditioning with Evaporative Cooling.
Ventilation systems can provide comfort cooling for most of the year. During prolonged periods of high temperatures they are unable to maintain internal temperatures below 25°C. Refrigeration based systems are effective but can be expensive to operate. Evaporative cooling, which can produce air consistently below 22°C in the UK climate, provides an intermediate solution which consumes only a fraction of the electricity.
Why use EcoCooling ?
The EcoCooling range is the only evaporative cooler designed specifically for the UK and European industrial and commercial market. We have been in operation now for over 10 years and have more than 1000 installations in the UK, many of our clients have used us for several different applications. We have a warehouse in Bury St Edmunds where we hold stock for all our coolers.
We pride ourselves on our service to our clients and consider ourselves to be at the forefront of evaporative cooling technology.

What are the savings?
An evaporative cooling installation typically consumes less than 10% of the electricity compared to the equivalent rated refrigeration based cooling system.

What is direct evaporative cooling and how does it work?
Evaporative cooling is a very simple method of cooling air without using refrigerants. A direct evaporative cooler, using wetted filter pads, cools air by bringing it into contact with water. Water evaporates into the air stream and cools it. The amount of cooling is dependent upon the temperature and relative humidity of the air. In the UK the maximum theoretical air off temperature is 22°C. click here for more information and animated drawing.
What temperature will I get out of a cooler when it is hot outside?
The performance of an EcoCooler is dependent upon the temperature of the air and the relative humidity. The higher the temperature and the lower the humidity the greater the cooling.
In the UK the humidity is always low when the temperatures are high so we can achieve a drop in temperature of over 10°C on the hottest days. In a tropical climate where humidity and temperatures are high we get very little cooling. Please click here for more details.
